Pick of the Week
Transistor (PC & PS4, May 20th)
Transistor is the latest super-gorgeous indie RPG from Supergiant Games (the makers of the critically acclaimed Bastion). Transistor is similar to Bastion in that it’s another stylish isometric RPG, but this time around a turn-based element has been added. Basically you dodge enemy attacks in real time until a bar fills up, at which point the game pauses and you choose your actions. Once you’re done choosing actions the game unpauses, your character performs the actions at super-speed and then it’s back to dodging again. Action, strategy, beautiful art — Transistor looks to deliver it all.
A good week, with more good weeks to come as we near E3. Any games you’re itching to get your hands on that I failed to mention? Hit the comments and let the world know.
